An ABA IndieNext Pick for December 2018

Praise for Not Of This Fold

“The plight of immigrants comes home to the Mormon community of Draper, Utah, in Harrison’s exceptional fourth Linda Wallheim mystery . . . Readers of all faiths will relate to kindhearted, thoughtful Linda, a devout Mormon who isn’t afraid to question the policies and leadership of the LDS church.”
—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review  

“Harrison often scathingly confronts religious doctrine, immigration injustice, racism, homophobia, marriage inequity, and male power abuses, all while deftly choreographing a multi-tentacled criminal cover-up . . . readers will continue to applaud Linda’s (thankfully) defiant tenacity.”
—Booklist

“Harrison has continued to use her work to tackle a series of issues facing the modern Mormon world . . . another fascinating dive into the internal politics of Mormonism.”
—Crime Reads 

“As always, Harrison’s plotting is tight, her pacing compelling . . . As Linda continues to test the resilience of her marriage, her own faith, and her sense of responsibility to women in the area, questions and insights tumble and align. For readers of the Linda Wallheim Mystery Series, this is a must-read book.”
—New York Journal of Books 

“A spellbinding murder investigation amidst crises of faith . . . Mette Ivie Harrison’s Not of This Fold is in a class by itself: a captivating story in which intelligence reigns supreme, where right and wrong are examined from various points of view.”
—Fresh Fiction

Not of This Fold is an engaging murder mystery that should satisfy any fan of the genre.”
—Association For Mormon Letters

“Good fiction writers utilize the fantastical, the mysterious, the seemingly incredible to bring awareness to universal issues that just might inspire readers to do something about injustices they see in the day-to-day . . . with Not Of This Fold, Harrison has done exactly that.” 
—Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought

“The mystery in Not of This Fold is first-rate, with plenty of red herrings . . . The added bonus of learning more about another culture makes Harrison’s entire series one you won’t want to miss. I know I don’t.”
—Kittling Books

Not of This Fold again ventures into the world of Mormon women fighting for power and a voice . . . [Harrison’s] intimate understanding of Mormonism and carefully drawn, complex characters will draw readers into a world and a faith tradition in transition, mirroring the struggles of the larger culture.” 
—Kelly Barth, Raven Books (Lawrence, KS)

Praise for the Linda Wallheim Mormon mysteries

 
The Bishop’s Wife has good reason to draw a large readership . . . Ms. Harrison’s Linda is such a welcome character: In her role as Sister Wallheim, she encourages women to speak freely.”
The New York Times

“Critically acclaimed author Mette Ivie Harrison’s mystery debut is an insider’s nuanced look at the workings of the Mormon church. Beautifully written, and spellbinding in its unflinching examination of marriage, family and faith, The Bishop’s Wife is an absolute must-read!”
—Julia Spencer-Fleming, New York Times bestselling author of the Clare Fergusson and Russ Van Alstyne Mysteries
 

“Sane, wise, likable . . . Linda has an engrossing voice, at once modest and assured.”
USA Today
 
“Excellent . . . Watching Linda Wallheim take on the church and its entitled male members as she unravels the mystery of Carrie’s and Helena’s disappearances is one of the chief pleasures of this richly detailed debut.”
—Los Angeles Times 

“A provocative piece of work.” 
—Salt Lake City Tribune 
 
 “Eye-opening . . . A novel so far from my reality I needed a telescope, but I think that’s why I enjoyed this debut so much.”
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
